A popfest would be great but money's very tight these days but I'll definitely pop in if I ever make it to Brum.

I just had a delivery. I just ate a vegan wagon wheel. Fuck me, they're WAY better than I remember.

So I'm gonna try and cook tempeh for the first time. Stir-fried in a green Thai curry - that'd work wouldn't it? Would it?

Yeah that'd be great!

I'd suggest marinating the tempeh in something before you cook it. Not that its suitable for this dish but BBQ sauce works dead well :)

Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

How did your adventures in tempeh go, Pete? I've got some at home that I'm planning on using to make this orzo pasta recipe from ppk.

Delayed by 24 hours! I got home last night to find mrs humblebee already cooking. I'll try it tonight instead...

For future reference, thisis the tempeh orzo pasta recipe I'm planning on trying out (hopefully tonight).

I also made this awesome herby artichoke casserole during the week. Only Nigel Slater would consider a jar of artichokes and a tin of flageolet beans "odds and ends," but it was pretty damn tasty. Even the boys were all over it and they usually hate anything vegetable-related.

Oooh, I've never done orzo. Should try that sometime. Only cooked artichoke a couple of times too. This is wrong. If you eat artichoke every day you will live to be 200. Fact.

In fact I haven't really made enough stews and casseroles this winter. I blame pearl barley for taking too long to cook.

Damn, this looks amazing. Artichokes! A few years ago I ate grilled marinated artichokes under a moonlit sky in Oxford and it was the happiest moment of my entire life.

Orzo is lovely isn't it? I like the texture. I use it instead of arborio to make a sort of mushroom risotto thing when I can't be arsed to stand over the pot stirring the rice for ages.

So I made the tempeh thing, but I didn't have any coconut milk to do a Thai curry so I stir-fried it with green peppers and mushrooms and onions and black bean sauce and cashew nuts. It was much heavier and nuttier than I expected so it didn't work very well like that. The whole thing was a bit dense and overpowering. Next time, the Thai thing for sure, with baby sweetcorn and light, bright things.

*rolls eyes* batch cook it in a pressure cooker and then freeze it in portions. Voila! Instant barley that only takes normal-stew-length-time to cook. (see also chick peas, black beans etc.)

I love orzo. I did a rather nice orzottoey thing with butternut squash, kale and stilton a couple of weeks back.

You appear to have mistaken me for someone with reasonable personal organisation skills. And a pressure cooker.

I've actually started planning out our meals in advance on a Sunday/Monday and it's made a huge difference, just knowing we have the stuff in and not having to think too much during the day about what to cook (which I spend ages doing, and then have to work late). I still don't think I'm capable of pre-soaking beans and stuff though.

This sounds amazing! Do you have a recipe? I can hardly ever make stuff like this in our house as my partner is the worst vegetarian ever: he's allergic to mushrooms, peanuts, blue cheese, and anything made of quorn (although quorn is rubbish anyway) and doesn't like eggs. I occasionally get an evening to myself to cook though and this is like my dream dinner.

I'm going to attempt some Glamorgan sausages soon.

Oh yeah, those quorn balls are good! I think it's the Asda own brand ones that are called "meat-free meatballs". Just balls then?
